From the NaNo site:
“National Novel Writing Month happens every November! It’s a fun, seat-of-your-pants writing event where the challenge is to complete an entire novel in just 30 days. For one month, you get to lock away your inner editor, let your imagination take over, and just create!
That means participants begin writing November 1 and must finish by midnight, November 30. The word-count goal for our adult program is 50,000 words, but the Young Writers Program (YWP) allows 17-and-under participants to set reasonable, yet challenging, individual word-count goals.
In 2010, 200,000 adults participated through our main site, and 41,000 young writers participated through the YWP.”
For more information check out the Young Writer’s Program.
- Write a novel during the month of November.
- Write about whatever you want!
- You will learn about elements of novel fiction writing during our meetings and on the club blog.
- You will not start writing the novel until November 1, and must stop on November 30.
- You can set your own word-count goals.
- Note that this is not a contest. This is a personal challenge with yourself to write more during November.
- Quantity is better than quality!
